Never Had the Nerve to Make the Final Cut

When I began reading A Suitable Boy, I thought separating the 1,474 pages into four sections of about equal length would make it easier to manage. But after making the first cut, and then the second, I just couldn’t bring myself to do it one last time.

Since the first two sections were actually each a little longer than a quarter of the book, this final section is shorter than half of the book anyway. I figure I can handle the last 650 pages in a single chunk.
